Seen today, Whale's masterpiece is more surprising than when it was made because today's audiences are more alert to its buried hints of homosexuality, necrophilia and sacrilege. But you don't have to deconstruct it to enjoy it.

Bride of Frankenstein (1935), a classic masterpiece of 1930s horror films, appeared as a superior sequel to the original Frankenstein (1931).
